BRUNSWICK, Maine — An 18-year-old Brunswick man was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland with head injuries Friday afternoon after another 18-year-old allegedly beat him with a bat on Summer Street.

Logan Dewey, 18, also of Brunswick, was charged with aggravated assault after the incident, which occurred at 3 p.m., near the intersection of Pleasant and Summer streets, according to Deputy Chief Marc Hagan of the Brunswick Police Department.

The victim allegedly went to the house to purchase marijuana, but during the transaction, an altercation ensued. Dewey left the house with a bat and struck the victim in the head, Hagan said.

Kathy Haycock, 21, of Brunswick was charged with assault after allegedly striking a 17-year-old Brunswick male as part of the same confrontation.
